I have quite a bit of experience as a teacher, tutor, and trainer in a variety of areas. Through high school and college I was a math tutor and have been tutoring roughly 20 hours each week as a hobby since August 2013. I have worked with at least 10 different students in all major mathematics classes starting with Algebra through Advanced Calculus. I have worked with many college students exclusively during finals weeks to help cram for exams but most of my students I meet with on a weekly or biweekly basis.
My father has been a high school teacher in math, physics and astronomy in the Stevens Point area for over 30 years, so I grew up learning things from him, and gaining teaching prowess. I am planning on pursuing a Ph.D. in economics, but I am taking a year off to focus on research, and to support my significant other as she begins her Ph.D. program in clinical psychology.
While in college, I have spent two years as the chess coach at the high school level, which included working with 10-15 students 2-3 times weekly. I also was the president of the economics club at my college for two years, and I did a lot of peer tutoring in economics and mathematics.
My tutoring method is simple - Teaching to make connections to things that students currently understands will increase their confidence, which is key in math and science. Teaching the process, and using repetition in mathematics will also help increase confidence and understanding. I am good at adapting to different learning styles which I have researched extensively to help my career in business, and am confident I can be successful teaching any of my areas of expertise.
